Marijuana myths are out of control. Prohibition has always put money into the pockets of criminals. The prohibition of marijuana has made it the "gateway drug" it is today. Parents should know that it's much easier to call a friend to buy weed than it is to find a stranger to buy alcohol. The problem is drug dealers often sell more than just marijuana.
Marijuana has numerous medicinal uses while alcohol just kills and destroys lives. Society has it backwards. This is the system we've created. Teaching our children the truth doesn't mean we have to glorify the drug.
